Description 

A really nice line for the (slightly sandbagged) grade, with a spicy alternate start.

Move up and left on the slab to a gap in the overlap above. Though it's fairly easy climbing, this start is runout with no pro until you reach a bolt below the overlap maybe 30' up. Continue up on good friction following the bolted line to the top.

Direct start (5.10a): Climb left of the regular start to join the route just below the first bolt. No protection.

Location 

Starts about 15' right of All I Wanted was a Pepsi.

Protection 

Mixed; five bolts supplemented by a light rack. Bolted anchors at the top.

Fun lead, very much worth doing.

Not really PG13. Start from the flake, placing gear under the flake in the cracks. Takes C3's nicely. Probably a little harder than 5.6 only using the flake.

Where does the direct route start? I tried doing it at the obvious place, almost directly beneath the first bolt on the face, and found it to be almost impossible before breaking a hold.

The direct start (or at least the one I always do) is a cool little boulder problem that starts above the sketchy landing where the rock sticks out just left of a highly eroded area. I would estimate the grade of this start to be about 11b, though the sketchy landing and warm weather can make it feel even harder.

Fun little route, really straight forward with no shortage of hands or feet the whole way. The direct start was pretty cool with a highstep mantle move down low and nice sloper above that.

Fun lead... 1st bolt was high off the deck, the rest were pretty spaced out (which made things more fun). Bomber #1 camalot under the flake protects between bolt 1 and 2. Some of the moves up high are pretty spicy!

I had an epiphany on the direct start. It's a 10b move on a cold high friction day wearing Miura's. It's an 11a move on a sunny greasy friction day wearing Mytho's.

I agree with O'Neal. The direct move is all about the friction. This is a great route for first timers as it is easily top roped, is low difficulty, and has the reward of topping out with a beautiful view. If you're protecting in the flake, you're in wrong spot. You should be in a spot where you're wondering how you're going to get off the ground at all. And it's good stretch of slab to the first bolt.
